This is one case where they get it exactly right.
The racist king of the fake country called Belgium, was a brutal dictator, responsible for repeated horrors in the Congo. From “A Throne in Brussels” by Paul Belien, chapter: The Cruel Pharaoh of the Congo pg 111:
“In the 23 years of Leopold II’s rule half the population of it’s approximately 20 million inhabitants perished. No other 19th century colony had a death toll as high as CFS.
Belgium was the model on which the EU was founded. A political entity based in a fake country, where it’s flag, anthem and national identity is shown no loyalty whatsoever, and on purpose, regardless of what you may have heard from the fictional character, Hercule Poirot.

Two plaques commemorating a visit to a British university by King Leopold II of Belgium have been torn down after student campaigners claimed they were racist.
The 19th century monarch visited Queen Mary University of London in 1887, when he laid the foundation stone of the library.
But student protesters said the plaques were offensive to ethnic minority students because they ‘pay homage to a genocidal colonialist’ and should be removed.
They claimed this would help black students feel ‘welcomed, respected, integrated and entitled to a sense of belonging on campus’.
Campaigners lobbied the student council to take down the plaques, but members voted against it. However, it emerged yesterday that university authorities removed the memorials quietly in June ‘as part of ongoing refurbishment’.
